Here's the game I created for Ludum Dare 27! The theme was "10 seconds".

The game is called "Robot Rodeo". The theme made me think of a rodeo where the rider has to stay on the bull for 8 seconds. In this game, you upgrade a robot and send it into an arena. The arena is littered with traps which will damage the robot.

After every match in the arena, the robot will be repaired back to maximum health. You will receive a certain amount of money for every second the robot survived in the arena.

If the robot lasts the full 10 seconds, you win! If you want, you can keep going at a higher difficulty. That means more traps in the arena!

This game was written in JavaScript with Notepad++ and NFOPad. I didn't use a pre-made framework so the code is pretty janky. I used GIMP for the graphics and both Audacity and BFXR for the sound.

I wanted to set up some kind of leader board so people could compete for higher scores, but my web programming knowledge isn't up to the task.

I am currently working on improving and expanding the upgrades available for your robot. Let me know if you have any suggestions!

Known bugs:
1. *FIXED* You have to click "Close" twice on upgrade windows.
2. Some parts of the buttons don't respond to clicks.
3. *FIXED* Strange graphical errors.
4. *FIXED* The "Heat Shield" upgrade doesn't work.

I greatly appreciate your feedback! Please let me know if you see any bugs or have any gameplay suggestions.
